Default To the next level...

Right, after having my phone rooted for a few days I've been thinking I should proceed to the next level and "update" to Jellybean via CyanogenMod 10.1 found in this topic but I have a few questions on how to do this...

1) Is there a tutorial on how to do this with the S2 from Boost?

2) I've only rooted via the root guide, what other software/kernels/ROMs do I need?

3) Which safe recovery should I get? ClockworkMod or something? Or does the AGAT thing count? Should it be replaced? Etc.

4) What are the steps to flash using ODIN (since Mobile ODIN doesn't currently support the Boost S2), since the video doesn't specify.

5) How do I clear the various caches and whatnot?

6) Anything else should I consider? Anything at all?

Thanks!

I went ahead and did it with the AGAT recovery, works good. I'm getting better at this stuff.

you should use a safe recovery when flashing. use the data wipe version. also you should clear cache, dalvik Cache and also do a factory data reset... i recommend using this kernel (add files to SD before kernel flash, it boots into custom recovery) EL29 Direct Boot
